Well said about that fine line.
Do you think it would be fair to include the previous line – “I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping” ? That helps me a bit; after all it is a good rhyme. By no means do I wish to get into a lyric debate regarding this song, which regardless of how the words fall does include some great guitar work. It is George’s vocal delivery that really make his songs work for me. Genius, I can’t say… but never a jackass. I’m hoping we agree?

Well said you too regarding the vocal delivery. Got to remember that these are songs, meant to be sung, not poems that stand alone. An ordinary lyric can be elevated into something special by the right musical accompaniment. Are we in agreement? I'd say done deal, Dan!
